Notes:
1. Although this is Scott #1, the first French stamp issued was #3
2. Scott record this stamp as FWA #1, but in Gibbons this is Senegal #220. SG's FWA #1 is Scott's B1, a 1945 5f + 20f purple Red Cross semi-postal, priced at 2.75 / 3.50. I'll need one of those anyway for the Guinness pages so I will show both here eventually.
